A CONFERENCE WITH A CAUSE
In the summer of 2012, Mental Health Heroes, a non-profit organization in Charleston, SC, and the Charleston Dorchester Mental Health Center, launched their first conference for mental health professionals to a sold out audience of 180 people. Since that time, the conference has attracted top notch presenters and has grown to over 970 attendees in 2016!
The Lowcountry Mental Health Conference is a fundraising event providing professional development training to mental health professionals from across the country. The money earned from the event goes to Mental Health Heroes, a private non-profit organization committed to offering support and crisis care for adults, children, and families suffering from mental illness.
